Bookseller Completion Rate
This reflects the percentage of orders the seller has received and filled. Stars are assigned as follows:
Inventory on Biblio is continually updated, but because much of our booksellers' inventory is uncommon or even one-of-a-kind, stock-outs do happen from time to time. If for any reason your order is not available to ship, an email notice will be sent right away and any charges promptly voided/refunded.
Our site-wide, 30 day return/refund policy guarantees that the items you order will be as described. If any return is due to an error on the seller’s part, you will receive a full refund.
Since 2005, Biblio has donated over $1 million to fund literacy and educational projects that benefit children in impoverished communities of South America. Through BiblioWorks, a 501(c)3 non-profit, we have built 12 community libraries, trained hundreds of teachers and librarians and changed the lives of tens of thousands of underprivileged children.
Every time you purchase a book on Biblio, you are supporting our mission of improving literacy and education at home and abroad. And, if you want to give a little more, be sure to choose to "Round up for Reading" when making your purchase, which will allow you to round up your purchase by a small amount - all of which will go directly to BiblioWorks.
